Yea give. I just use a turkey baster to draw up some liquid to dissolve it in then pour it back in. You can mix it pretty well by just repeatedly squeezing the baster inside the wine without blowing bubbles. this agitates the yeast, mixes the nutrient and does not introduce much oxygen.

After you move it to secondary, how long should you wait to bottle? You said 1-2 months .what came out better? How long should it sit in bottle before you drink it? The big question is when can you drink it?

haha as soon as it's clear you can drink it. Normally by the time it's clear the fermentation has stopped. I still recommend stabilizing, but it's pretty much good to go. It does mellow over time and the flavors come together, but this isn't a fancy 2-3 year aging wine.

Thank you Brazedowl! I will move into secondary today and let it clear. Being a beer brewer, I have plenty of bottles so I will use this method of bottling when ready. I'll update then.

This question comes up frequently. Here's the standard response

Sometimes the OG is so high that the yeast doesn't get started or can peeter out. Did it start vigorously and then stop? I had to take out about 3L and topped back up with water. It went off like crazy. I siphoned the 3L off into a 4L carlo rosi bottle and topped it with water and it took off too. I'll recombine the two volumes when it comes time to bottle so as not to lose any. That would be my advice.

Thats exactly what happened. It took off like crazy and went for a week. I took a hydrometer reading and it was only half done. I did throw in some yeast nutrient but that has done nothing.
